Yesterday at the U.S. Track & Field Championships, Tyson Gay ran away from Wallace Spearmon to run 200 meters in 19.62 seconds, a meet record and second only to the world record 19.32 that Michael Johnson set in 1996.

“The time was excellent. The race was excellent, too,” Gay said. “I wasn’t thinking about any time. I was trying to get away from Wallace Spearmon as fast as I could.”

Tyson Gay ran about 22.8 miles per hour in his win. I hope that his season continues to go so well and that we see a new mark set some time in the near future. Hopefully, the entire field of the fastest sprinters will be healthy at the next competition.
